yup, that's exactly why Gore fell so far in the draft. He was looked at as "first round talent"
That's not completely true. The injuries to Gore were related more to the longevity of his career, not capability. He dropped because since he was always injured in college, he never really showed THAT much. So, there were durability concerns and doubts about many years he could play.
With Bowers, it's different. He had one good year, and his injuries suggest that he will never regain his explosion to begin with. So, with this threat of never playing again, and on top of that "was he a one year wonder?", he dropped.
Different in my opinion
